Poll: Things Your Boss Should Know–But Doesn’t

Oct 17, 20061 min

I have a friend with a boss who once told him to remove all the related links from a web site he managed. In her opinion, the links just cluttered the pages. In his, she was committing traffic suicide by making it harder to find content.

He’s no longer with that company and much happier. That story–combined with some classic boss-to-employee interaction I witnessed on The Nine and The Office recently, got me thinking about things every boss should know, but which seem to elude so many.

To check the state of office life, I’ve posted a new quiz about the Top 5 Things Your Boss Should Know–But Doesn’t. Post your opinion there (anonymously, of course) or leave a comment below and recite your favorite tale of woe.
